PREFACE. 



The matter of continuing the publication of York Deeds was 
presented to the last legislature of the state by the Maine His- 
torical Society and others, and was referred to the Judiciary Com- 
mittee which, after a hearing, reported unanimously in favor of 
continuing the enterprise, and the legislature passed the resolve, 
of which the following is a copy : 

" Resolved, Thut the Maine Historical Society, agreeing to 
supervise the copying, attesting, editing, indexing and publishing 
of volumes nine and ten of the public records of this state in the 
office of the register of deeds for York County, in the same 
creditable manner as in the eight preceding volumes already 
published, except that they are not required to be leaded, be- 
cause of their increased size, the governor and council shall 
purchase for the state four hundred and fifty copies of volume 
nine and the like number of volume ten at five dollars per vol- 
ume ; and the state librarian shall cause one copy of each volume 
to be placed in each registry of deeds in this state ; the remaining 
copies to be distributed or exchanged at the discretion of said 
librarian. 

"Approved March 15, 1893. 

" Henry B. Cleaves, Governor." 

At the annual meeting of the Society holden at Cleveland Hall, 
Brunswick, June 21, the Society accepted the terms set forth in 
the resolution, and designated myself, by nomination and con- 
firmed by ballot, as supervisor, and the Brown Thurston Com- 
pany, publishers, at Portland, commenced work. 

Book IX is deposited at the office of register of deeds in the 
Court House at Alfred, York County, where all the titles to real 
estate within what was then the Province of Maine that were 
recorded prior to 1760 are kept, and is one of the best preserved 
of the ancient record books. Leaf numbered two hundred 
and seventy-three is detached, otherwise the volume is perfect. 

The first page is inscribed as follows : 

The Ninth Book of Deeds && for the 
County of York 

1718 

Joseph Hammond Reg r 

Cost 40/ 



6 Preface. 

The last entry made was January 6th, 1719/20, with Joseph 
Hammond as register, and the volume closed by him with the 
word " Finis." On the last page, however, is scribbled in two 
places, Jos Hamond Reg of Deeds, and in the first part of the 
volume are six pages of index matter; this is omitted herein, 
otherwise the printed volume is as perfect a transcript, in my 
opinion, as can be produced by experienced copyists, type-setters 
and proof-readers. 

The old manuscript volume contains two hundred and seventy- 
five leaves, and as the leaves only are numbered there are five 
hundred and fifty pages of written m itter therein contained 
besides the six pages of index. 

On leaf thirty-one appears a plan, and another on leaf two 
hundred and forty-five. The copy of these has been reduced in 
size that they might be each presented on a single page of the 
printed leaves. 

For an explanation of signs and contractions of the text, I 
respectfully refer to the Preface of Book I, pages thirteen and 
fourteen. It is there stated that " the spelling of the manuscript, 
the contractions, the eccentric use of capitals, and the punctuation, 
or lack of it, are all unchanged in the printed copy." The asser- 
tion there made as applying to that Book can be applied to 
this with equal truthfulness and force.
